Water doesn't get much more mysterious than this 23 mile stretch running through the Great Glen in the Highlands of Scotland.There's no better way to experience Loch Ness than by boat. Jacobite's award winning tours and cruises get you onto the water and into the heart of this iconic landscape. This is a whole lot more than simply sight-seeing. We've been running trips on and around Loch Ness for over 30 years and most of us live here.

Nice boat ride. I was a little surprised they only had a recording. It would have been better if a person was there telling the story. I have done other cruises where the person telling the story makes the whole trip

Boat was on-time, boarding was easy and quick. Good narrative on the way to the castle. We really enjoyed our time exploring the ruined castle. Return trip was without narrative but the landscape was very pleasant to look at. All-in-all a good value. All 5...More

We took the 2 hr Freedom Cruise....a 30 min or so boat ride across the Loch with nice commentary followed by an hour on our own at the castle ruins. Lovely time!

We had fairly nice weather Just did basic tour. Audio could have been louder and video would have been great instead of constant running ads on the monitors.

Maybe the one hour Loch cruise would suit the children. It can be boring and long for the children
